Nice Adaptation for PreK!
Kristin Johnson

Does anyone know of a good parent handout regarding developmental spelling for a teacher to hand out?
Mary Novotny
02:04:47
Please teachers be aware of left-handed learners in pre-k. Teaching a left-handed learner with dysgraphia is NOT just teaching the forms of letter while holding a pencil in the left hand.
Ruth-Anne Hayes
02:05:24
What do you mean by that?
Ruth-Anne Hayes
02:09:56
My question was addressed to Mary Novotny. I wasn’t sure what she indicating about left handed learners.
Julie Wallace
02:13:10
I teach middle school remedial reading using the Read 180 program. My classes 6,7,& 8th are unidentified dyslexic students. My students struggle with motivation. Vocabulary is a big deficit. Would you be able to give some suggestions or ideas to implement?
Bebe Greenberg
02:13:27
Thank you!
Stephanie Joyce
02:13:42
Much gratitude. Such welcome news on the screener.
Ruth-Anne Hayes
02:14:22
Thanks you so much for your time and expertise!
Shelby Gentile
02:14:47
How can advocate for students to get screened when in a Title 1 school ?
Mary Novotny
02:15:01
@Ruth Ann. OK. I am the parent of a left-handed dyslexic learner. In pre-k and k his teachers used Handwriting Without Tears. However, they used the templates with the pencil strokes for a right-handed learner. My learner already struggled with LR tracking, pencil grip, fine motor control and all the challenges of dyslexia. It was impossible for him. Please use the worksheets and pencil strokes for left-handed learners modules. It just removes one barrier to writing. My learner had un-learn and re-learn handwriting.

Congratulations. WOW!
Daniel D'Eustachio
02:17:54
That's great to hear!
Ruth-Anne Hayes
02:19:03
Thank you Mary!! I’ve got you now and totally agree. Thanks for the information. My daughter is a left-handed dyslexic and we used Handwriting Without Tears but modified it. So sorry for your frustrating experience. I so appreciate you sharing!!

We will send the link to the handbook in a follow-up email
Carrie Farris
02:27:29
So will children have to have a ‘dyslexic’ diagnosis/label before they receive services in public schools?
Ruth-Anne Hayes
02:28:36
Thank you for linking the handbook Kim!
Julie Wallace
02:28:57
When will districts not in the pilot begin to use sceeners and implement interventions in pre-k/kindergarten.
Tina Engberg
02:34:37
@Julie Wallace, it isn't until 2024 school year according to the law itself. It picks up after the pilot concludes.
